AHIN-SP-001265 • Nr. Villedieu-les-Poêles • Ancient 6 Bedroomed Mill House with room to extend on 2 acres
The property has been completely renovated over the last 15 years by the present owners with Duclos double glazed windows throughout with roller shutters. The house has been insulated and plumbing and electrics were replaced. There are a wealth of character features including exposed stone walls and beams, a granite fireplace and wood floors. The house has a decent length of river frontage making the property perfect for fishing or generating electricity by installing a water wheel. The Mill stream runs under the centre of the ground floor of the attached three storey building which is divided into garage and workshop. The third floor has an exposed ancient oak "A" frame and already has double glazed windows fitted - this building could be converted into a self-contained gîte, subject to obtaining the necessary planning permission. Viewing is highly recommended.
The property is set back from the road with occasional passing traffic, mostly agricultural – yet in 5 minutes you can be in the vibrant, historic, market town of Villedieu-les-Poêles.The town has all the shops, schools, services and businesses you will need, plus a trading estate with reputable and comprehensively stocked DIY stores and builders merchants. There is also a mainline train station with a direct line to Paris with easy access to the Eurostar. The A84 Autoroute is just 5 minutes away, giving easy access to the Channel ports of Ouistreham (Caen) – 45 minutes away and Cherbourg at just over an hour. The historic city of Avranches, the gateway to Brittany, is a 20 minute drive down the A84 and this brings you into sight of Mont Saint Michel – one of the most iconic and important historical sites in Europe. The delightful town of Granville and the beautiful Normandy coast line is around 30 minutes away, as are the ancient cities of Saint Lo, Bayeux and Coutances. The area is served by airports with regular scheduled UK flights (including the budget airlines) at Caen Carpiquet – 45 mins, and both Rennes and Dinard are just over an hour away. The D Day beaches and museums can be reached in around 45 minutes.
